    PSA – Eurosport Black Friday Deal

    Annual subscription for 19.99
    https://auth.eurosportplayer.com/create-account?flow=purchase

    Seems like a good deal if you’re not signed up already. I’ll be getting it to watch the spring classics, my wife will probably get more use out of it watching all the horse jumping.

    Not like the good old days when the Black Friday deal was £0.99

    For a year? I must have missed that. I managed to get a month for 99p to watch Paris-roubaix a couple of years back

    Eurosport Player isn’t in the LG App Store. I could get it via Amazon Prime, but then it’s priced at an eye watering £84 pa rather than £20!

    OK. In anticipation of four hundred PSA threads coming up in the next week, I think we need a single official thread. So congratulations, this is it.

    can we have one thread for MTB stuff and one for lawnmowers, global knives and bad jeans? You know, the really important things?

    Every friday is white friday. Why can’t we have one friday a year celebrating black fondness for discounted consumer goods without some white friday designation wanting, unchecked privilege having oppressor declaring racism?

    If you’re looking for a posh radio, JL has the Roberts iStream 3 for £149 (in white only). It’ll also recharge any batteries in there, whilst plugged in, unlike the non-internet RD70 version.

    I’m going to make a point of spending as little as possible over the next few weeks.
    I know we live in a capitalist paradise (sic) but the crass commercialism of black Friday, et al, does make the bile rise even more than normal.

    You’ll need a bucket or Jerry can but having tried a few options these are probably the best solution to washing your bike where there isn’t a wash station or hosepipe available.

    Yeah man ✌️ ☮️ 😘

    I suppose I just see a lot of overstretched and stressed out people in my job, and this constant push, push, push to buy stuff we don’t need, and the environmental impact of rampant over-consumption depresses me a bit.

    You guys knock yerselves out though.

    Echo show 8 and 2 hue bulbs for £69.99 on amazon

    Shockwiz cheap (relative to rrp) on CRC I nearly bought it but found out it doesn’t work with Scott bikes

    I prefer to pay full price for my virtue signalling kits so everyone in the supply chain makes a living wage from them.

    I prefer to make my own using locally sourced materials. It helps keep my carbon footprint down as the kits you can buy are shipped from half way across the world.

    Currys has Blink XT2 camera kits for almost the best price I’ve seen, but also with a free Echo Dot and 6 months of Spotify Premium, even with the £75 single-cam-plus-hub kit. Got myself an extra camera to pair with the one in the garage.

    35% off at Castelli if you have a login and ordered from them till Thursday 28th Nov

    The usual Amazon Kindle and Fire details are up. Just got a Fire stick for £20 down from the normal £40. Was an upgrade for my old Gen1 stick that was getting very slow and frustrating. This is a breath of fresh air and I can be even lazier now it has the volume control buttons as well.

    I bought a new front light last night, at normal price and because I needed it to ride home safely (currently only have 1 on the go, prefer 2, so if one runs out or fails I’m still lit).

    Other planned purchases are …. none.

    Does anyone in the UK even know/care when it’s supposed to be?

    Brand-X XL dropper (170mm) is down to about £110 from £170 with the code FLASH on CRC at the moment.

    Last Friday of November I believe

    <pedant>The Friday after Thanksgiving, which is the last Thursday in November. Black Friday could therefore be the first Friday in December</pedant>

    I’m hoping for a good Xbox One s / Forza Horizan 4 bundle deal. Game.co.uk had black friday start today, but consoles aren’t ‘released’ until Thursday evening

    <pedant>The Friday after Thanksgiving, which is the last Thursday in November. Black Friday could therefore be the first Friday in December</pedant>

    [Double pedant] not since 1939. Thanksgiving was moved from the last to the penultimate Thursday in ’39 by Roosevelt as it would have been the 30th which was felt to be too late as it shrank the Christmas shopping period too much. In 41 they decided that was silly as some years it fell too early so in ’41 they made it the 4th Thursday in November so the calendar that year didn’t change but the reason it fell on the same date did.
    As such black Friday can’t currently fall later than the 29th of November as it does this year (and not earlier than the 23rd)[/double pedant]

    If you have kids and like shooting them, then get some of these:

    https://www.hawkin.com/x-shot-chaos-orbit-ball-blaster

    Outrageously good deal for a better-than-nerf competitor nerf gun. It’s not for the little kids though. Ideal for the 40 year old kids
